I've been making my living from writing for many years - so I must be doing something right. A copywriter and copy-editor, I thrive on variety. I have an enquiring nature and very good general knowledge, so - with a little research if necessary - can turn my hand to writing about most things.

The things that I can do for you are:

With so much competition for people's attention in these days of jabbering media, it's not an easy task. But if it were easy, it wouldn't be worth doing.
You've got it written. You've already done the most original and creative part. Now you just want to make sure that it's polished and lubricated and ready to be rolled out to an admiring audience. That's where I can help you. I can remove any grammatical or orthographical blemishes, any bumps or dents in the body, any unevenness in the action, any excessive gas emissions, so that your text can impress the way it deserves...
